Amy Smith, Office Coordinator
Amy is a native of West Point, Virginia and currently lives in New Kent. She has been in the dental field since 1995, and has experience in chairside dental assisting, OSHA regulated sterilization, HIPAA compliance, and she is x-ray and CPR certified. Amy also has experience processing insurance claims, and accounts payable and receivable. Her gentle and outgoing personality makes patients feel comfortable with dental procedures and when discussing financial options. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her three very active and loving sons, Zach, Austin and Grayson. Her dedication and compassion to her family is carried over to her career in dentistry and loyalty to our practice.
I have been with Dr. Nancy Schumann's office for 6 years. When I am not working I am enjoying time with my family, especially my 25-year-olrd daughter. I enjoy being outdoors working in my garden or soaking up the sun, feeling sand between my toes or reading a good book.
I earned my bachelor’s degree in Dental Hygiene from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2011, after working several years within a corporate capacity. I also hold bachelor’s degrees in Psychology and Sociology. Recently, I had served as Adjunct Faculty at Thomas Nelson Community College in their Dental Hygiene clinic. I am most passionate about building relationships with patients. I feel so fortunate to be able to play a part in improving their overall health. In my free time I enjoy traveling often, reading and time with family and friends.
I lived in Richmond Virginia before moving to Williamsburg nine years ago. I attended West Virginia University where I graduated in 2018 with a bachelor’s degree in Dental Hygiene. I have a passion for educating patients of all ages about the preventive side of dentistry and the importance that oral health has in association with the rest of the body and mind. I particularly enjoy the challenge of helping ease the anxiety many patients bring to the chair. I like for my patients to feel that a visit to the dentist can be a positive experience. Outside of the office, I enjoy going to the beach, traveling, running, spending time with family, and cheering on the WVU Mountaineers!
